Dr Jim discusses knee pain and the surrounding nerves

Treating Knee Pain with Chiropractic

Each year we have hundreds of patients mention knee pain or come in specifically after a knee injury. Chiropractic treats all the joints in the body and not just the back, so we have treatment that can alleviate pain and accelerate healing for knee pain and knee injuries.

Examining the Nerves Surrounding the Knee

One of the first things that we’ll do is look at how the nerves are firing and functioning with our scanning tool. The nerves control the energy to the knee area, which affects the rehabilitation to the knee area.

The Knee is Interconnected

We’ll also look if the hip and ankle joints are moving correctly, as they affect each other from the ankle up to knee down. If those joints are limited, such as rotation in the hip, the knee will be affected and prone to pain or re injury.

Treating Knee Range of Motion

In addition to adjusting the back, hips, and ankles that are contributing to the knee pain, we use our adjustment instrument to work on the range of motion. The instrument taps 12 times per second and when used on restricted tissue, it will work through to regain a normal range of motion.
